Built for success for the most demanding enterprises The requirements of enterprise class organizations go beyond standard website management needs. Leading research and analyst studies identify the following capabilities for online leadership for organizations and enterprises today:
Multisite management Robust Multilanguage management Clustering support for large sites Rich integration capabilities Multi-device support Brand enforcement and content compliance
Sitecore not only supports these capabilities but provides considerable flexibility, elegance and simplicity in the way these abilities are deployed and managed in your environment. Sitecore readily integrates into your environment Content is the heart of every website, and content can often come from anywhere in your organization. One of the greatest challenges in any CMS project is integrating with external systems for content delivery. Sitecore CMS provides a full data integration and abstraction layer we call Sitecore Data Providers that allows you to connect to any database, web service or other external systems once, and access that content as if it were native Sitecore content. In essence, Sitecore “virtualizes” external repositories to act as Sitecore based content which allows you to easily utilize and deploy any content throughout your organization. 2|Page
